Revoz Remains Slovenia's Top Exporter

Ljubljana, 04 April (STA) - Car assembly plant Revoz, the Slovenian subsidiary of the French car maker Renault, remained Slovenia's biggest exporter in 2010, followed by home appliances maker Gorenje and drug maker Krka, daily Delo reported on Monday.

Revoz exported EUR 1.3bn-worth of goods last year, Gorenje EUR 1.1bn and Krka EUR 855.8m, according to data obtained by Delo from the companies.

The top three exporters are followed by steel group SIJ (EUR 488.8m), energy producer Holding Slovenske elektrarne (EUR 446m), aluminium maker Impol (EUR 375.4m), energy group Petrol (EUR 360m), car parts maker Cimos (EUR 346.5m), SIJ subsidiary Acroni (EUR 299.7m) and industrial group Kolektor (EUR 297.1m).

The provisional data form the Statistics Office show that Slovenian companies generated a total of more than EUR 18bn of exports last year, an increase of 13.7% year-on-year.

Around EUR 13.2bn-worth of goods were exported to the EU, almost 72% of Slovenia's total exports.

Delo suggests that the export plans of the top companies, which have significantly increased their exports in 2010, are in no way optimistic, projecting only a 1% increase for 2011.
